BELL IN THE FOG AND OTHER STORIES

GERTRUDE ATHERTON    Book Number: 53193    Product format: Paperback

Gertrude Atherton was born in San Francisco in 1857, and died in 1948. She eloped at the age of 19, took up writing against her husband's wishes, and after his death became a protegee of Ambrose Bierce, whose influence can be seen here in those stories, 'The Dead and the Countess', 'Death and the Woman' and 'The Striding Place', which have an overtly supernatural element. Elsewhere, 'The Greatest Good of the Greatest Number', 'The Tragedy of a Snob' and 'A Monarch of a Small Survey' the psychological takes precedence over the supernatural. And in 'The Bell in the Fog' (reminiscent of 'The Turn of the Screw', and dedicated to Henry James) the supernatural and psychological combine to brilliant effect: an angelic child bears a striking resemblance to an old portrait. 173 page paperback.
